Gideon Plays

Gideon Nxumalo’s Gideon Plays might just be the most mythologised
and sought-after LP in the whole South African canon.
A sophisticated bop excursion with a distinctive African edge,
it was only Nxumalo’s second LP as leader, despite his crucial place in South African jazz history.
Pianist Nxumalo was a visionary jazz composer who had recorded regularly during the 1950s,
and his 1962 Jazz Fantasia album was the first South African jazz recording
to incorporate traditional African musical sources and instruments.
But he was also the country’s most significant radio presenter and jazz tastemaker
– from 1954 onwards, he had worn the nickname ‘Mgibe’ to introduce
‘This Is Bantu Jazz’, South African radio’s premier jazz show.


Gideon Nxumalos "Gideon Plays" ist vielleicht die am meisten mythologisierte
und begehrteste LP im gesamten südafrikanischen Kanon sein.
Ein raffinierter Bop-Ausflug mit einer unverwechselbaren afrikanischen Note,
Es war erst Nxumalos zweite LP als Leader, obwohl er einen wichtigen Platz in der südafrikanischen Jazzgeschichte einnimmt.
Der Pianist Nxumalo war ein visionärer Jazzkomponist, der in den 1950er Jahren regelmäßig Aufnahmen gemacht hatte,
und sein Album Jazz Fantasia von 1962 war die erste südafrikanische Jazzaufnahme
die traditionelle afrikanische Musikquellen und Instrumente einbezog.
Aber er war auch der bedeutendste Radiomoderator des Landes und ein Vordenker des Jazz
- Seit 1954 trug er den Spitznamen "Mgibe", um die Sendung
This Is Bantu Jazz", die erste Jazzsendung des südafrikanischen Rundfunks.

EN: Honest Jon's is an independent record shop based on Portobello Road in Ladbroke Grove, London, operating since 1974. The shop is owned and run by Mark Ainley and Alan Scholefield, who took over from one of the original proprietors, "Honest" Jon Clare. Their record label of the same name is run in conjunction with Damon Albarn, who has been quoted as saying: "I don't really like the term world music. Wherever it comes from, it's all just music, isn't it? Hopefully that's what Honest Jon's is about - to open a few minds to what's out there."[1] The shop sells a multitude of genres of music on vinyl and CD, specializing in jazz, blues, reggae, dance, soul, folk and outernational. It runs a mail-order business from Formed in 2002, the label has released compilation albums such as its London Is The Place For Me series, excavating the music of young Black London, in the years after World War II ("a fascinating archive of material from the 1950s and 60s, chronicling a time when diasporic rhythms were more or less the sole preserve of the small communities responsible for bringing them to these shores");[2] also collections of British folk, Port-of-Spain soca, Afro-Cuban jazz from the Bronx, Jamaican dancehall; and retrospectives of artists including Moondog, Maki Asakawa, Bettye Swann and Cedric "Im" Brooks & The Light of Saba. It has released original music by Candi Staton, Actress, T++, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Mark Ernestus, Trembling Bells, The Good, The Bad & The Queen, Simone White, Shackleton, Michael Hurley, Terry Hall, and the Moritz Von Oswald Trio. It recorded the chaabi orchestra of Abdel Hadi Halo on location in Algiers; Lobi Traore and Kokanko Sata Doumbia in Bamako; and Tony Allen in Lagos. In 2008, Honest Jon's began a run of compilations of early recordings — mostly drawn from the EMI Archive in Hayes, Hillingdon — stretching back to the start of the twentieth century, covering all corners of the world: from the break-up of the Ottoman Empire more than a hundred years ago, to 1950s Beirut, to late-1920s Baghdad, to 1930s East Africa. wikipedia
